TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Nikko New Century Beijing
The hotel was better than I was expecting having enough facilities within the complex to cater for pretty much any Westernised visitors requirements.
The rooms were clean and spacious even the budget ones. The wifi was only available within the lobby but there were data access points in the rooms and they supplied a connecting cable for a laptop so no complaints there.
Drinking water was supplied and replenished daily.
The main restaurant was pleasant and bright and service was good, there were several other restaurants but we only tried one which served traditional Chinese food and was excellent.
On the whole would recommend this hotel to anyone vistiong Beijing.

... security...we passed a heavily armed bus with electronic equipment inside there as well. Definitely a very impressive square with government structures and buildings. The Forbidden City is where the Emperors and their officials and families lived. With many gates leading into another inner sanctum getting closer to where the Emperor lived. we walked for a few kilometres just to get from the outer buildings where the commoners could live to the inner centre of ...

The audience can tell who the heroes or villains of the opera are, simply by how their faces are painted.

We were seated at table and were treated to tea and ...
... became more commercialised. There are two Great Wall sites nearer Beijing where swarms of people would be visiting, especially at a time of public holiday. We decided that instead of wasting energy tramping up the paths to the wall at the top, we would use the cable car, but I found it a bit small, slow and rickety and was very pleased to get out at the top. As we slowly ascended, though, the whole vista of the wall slowly revealed itself on right and left and ...
... on main multi-lane streets with traffic lights. It was through crowded alleyways the entire distance. The driver laid on the horn, we almost hit people walking, people on bicycles, people on scooters, parked cars, moving cars, dirt piles, freight stacked on pallets, outdoor restaurants, etc. We would go through an alley, cross a major road into another alley; this went on for about 15 minutes. Finally at the last major road, the hotel appeared ...
... the same. My Uncle Bill was into Kung Fu and martial arts so I thought he would be impressed. After the show we bumped into our last tour leader Richard who was the with his next group which was a nice surprise. He seemed pleased to see us so it was nice to have a little reunion! Straight to bed for me after that cos I was completely shattered after having such a bad nights sleep. The hotel bed looked promisingly comfortable though so I'm confident for a good sleep ...
